If you’re looking for some authentic New Orleans jazz then the Spotted Cat is an excellent place to hang out. Located on the legendary Frenchmen Street, the music club is a classic spit-and-sawdust kind of joint. There are usually three different bands each day and if you aim to arrive late afternoon (when it’s free to enter), you should be able to see the final set of the first band and the first set of the second. Arrive too late and you may have to wait to get in, as the crowd can quickly swell out onto the street – there may also be a modest cover charge.
